We engaged Aria during a transition period. She helped the Festival strategize its grant solicitations. She was very helpful in identifying new funding leads
EmpowHer Institute has been working with Aria Edry and Edry and Associates for over 3 years and during that time our revenue has more than tripled. Besides Aria’s fundraising expertise, her creativity and outside-the-box ideas have contributed to the success of important signature events that increased our level of donor and community support and awareness for the organization. Our portfolio of funders continues to grow and we’re so pleased to have added a number of Los Angeles’ most prestigious foundations.
As residences for chronically homeless, mentally ill adults in Santa Barbara, WillBridge has relied in the past almost exclusively on government funding. Aria Edry has come on board to assist our efforts to diversify and expand our funding support. We have already seen a seven percent increase in our funding and expect a more substantial increase in the near future. Aria encourages exploratory sessions to really grasp the mission, direction, goals and objectives of the agency. It is a great asset to our agency to work with someone like Aria who is a sensitive listener and has a breath of knowledge and facility to tell our story easily and effectively.
